The 2028 Olympics Will Be Held in Los Angeles

Thomas Bach insisted Pyeongchang 2018 will not be affected by the North Korea crisis

Los Angeles, host city to the 1932 and 1984 summer games, conceded the 2024 Olympics to Paris, Tom goes on, and has been promised $180 million by the International Olympic Committee for doing that.

The announcement was published after an International Olympic Committee meeting in Lima, Peru, where the decision was expected. "But to us the Games have always represented an even brighter future and the chance to harness the power of sport and the Olympic Movement again to inspire the next generation - for the next 11 years and beyond".

The European country has also hosted the Winter Olympics three times. That recommendation is expected to be ratified this week in Peru.

The 2024 Games will mark the third time Paris will be staging the Olympics, coming exactly 100 years after they last hosted the Games.

The United States finally lands a Summer Games after failed bids by NY for 2012 and Chicago for 2016. Paris will also get to host on the centennial anniversary of the 1924 Olympics. "Today, LA 2028 is taking the final step in our bid, and preparing to begin our 11-year journey as an Olympic host city".

"With the support, enthusiasm and passion of their citizens and athletes, Los Angeles and Paris have presented the best of their cities", IOC Member and Evaluation Commission Chair Patrick Baumann said in the report. "Both cities are very enthusiastic about the Games and are promoting the Olympic spirit in a fantastic way". The city plans to use the Coliseum in 2028, meaning it will have been part of three Olympics.

I was looking to stand and trade punches with him but when I felt that I could control his weight, I chose to go with that. Johnson was looking to set the UFC record for consecutive title defenses, as he is now tied with Anderson Silva.

As many as six cities were involved as bidders.

Los Angeles has bid 10 times, and its path to 2028 was long and circuitous.

In 2015, Boston was initially awarded the USA bid for the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games, but dropped out.

"Now, I know what you're thinking...these LA guys seem pretty laid back", Wasserman said.

"Many times every city is working so hard.to build the infrastructure, they can't think about the environment, they can't think about the economy, they can't think about the health of their people". The City of Angels was then given the opportunity.
